Nebraska has surprised a few in their official visits and sneaking in a visitor that maybe wasn't…
Issac plans on instant impact at Linebacker U
Credit the Beaver coaching staff for hitting the pavement and letting Issac and his family know how how much they wanted the 6-3, 215-pound sack machine to don the black and orange.
"The (OSU) coaches showed that they really cared about me," said Issac (6-3, 215). "They came by here to see me. They came by to see my mom and my dad -- twice -- when my dad couldn't make the first meeting."
Also of appeal, Linebacker U.
"I like the defensive scheme at Oregon State a lot," said Issac. "I like the blitzing...I did like Nebraska a lot because they did have a good football program. I just felt the Oregon State coaches showed more interest and spent more time on me. They wanted me more than any other school."
Issac has some work yet to do before receiving his AA degree. He's optimistic he'll have everything squared away in time for fall camp.
"Hopefully I'll get it by the end of this summer, and be in Corvallis before school starts," said Issac.
ISSAC WAS NAMED first team all-conference and first team all-region in 2005, tying for second in the WSFL with 11 sacks in 10 games. "I had 11 sacks, not 10," says Issac.
A prep track star who clocked a 21.5 in the 200-meters at Buchholz High in Gainesville, Florida, Issac's speed transfers well to the gridiron as he chased down running backs and QBs first at New Mexico Military, then at Eastern Arizona this past season. Now, he looks forward to doing more of the same on the Pac-10 stage.
"I can't wait to get to Corvallis, play football and become part of the Beaver Nation," said Issac, who three to play two at Oregon State.
